A homespun glimpse at the election from a favorite of our blog community . . .
Super Dave: Holy Moly, Is This For Real?
I have witnessed a number of totally messed up incidents in my lifetime but I have yet to see something as messed up as this last election was. "Was there any election fraud?" Seems to be the question on many people’s minds. I have no doubt there was election fraud and it was probably carried on in figures that are staggering. Now the key issue to this is that in order to do the audits necessary to eliminate fraud would take weeks to do. I do find it rather amazing that for almost 3 years beginning the day after the elections in November 2016 all I heard was collusion this, collusion that and voter fraud from many key political figures and mainstream media. Months and months of investigations took place to find out there wasn’t any. Once again we are seeing the same statements being made of fraud, fake ballots, and everything else plus all of a sudden mainstream media and one side of the political spectrum are all saying it does not exist. Oh it exists and it's alive and well but it’s being done by the American people walking our streets. Mail-in balloting is not a way to hold an election . . .
Having computer systems doing our election counting can be scary. Personally I don’t think one company should have a hold on several states and there is currently a company that does and has had issues which they are quick to pass off as human error. I thought that was the whole idea behind using computers was to eliminate human error? Dominion Voting Systems for starters is used in a number of states and there has been more than questionable incidents brought up about their systems. DVS as we will call it here has claimed there is nothing wrong with their machines and that they are all functioning correctly. Well yes of course they’re going to tell you their machines make no mistakes. To come out in and openly admit that their machines don’t function correctly, are easily hacked, and a number of other things that could be done to them such as backdoor programs would be committing self-financial suicide. The company would be out of business within 30 days because nobody would touch them or want anything to do with them. Does DVS allow outside independent IT expert’s double check all of their machines to make sure they are clean and set up as per specifications for that election? Do the states that use these machines have such done? Or does everybody just assume everything is okay? I mean come on, who monitors DVS to make sure they have everybody’s best interest in mind? Several MIT educated IT professionals have shown quite clearly how DVS systems are not that secure.
If somebody stops and thinks about it for a minute there are over 3400 counties in this country. That’s over 3400 independent election offices. That’s a staggering number. Not all offices operate under the same rules so they are basically 3400 independent offices who semi-set their own rules on how they will do things depending on which state it happens to be in. One local county kicked out over 2200 ballots to not be counted. Of those 2200 were over 1400 people that received a ballot who were not even registered to begin with. So lets take all those counties we have in this country and let’s just say for simple math each County had 2000 votes that made it through the system but were no doubt illegal votes. That tallies to 6,800,000 votes. That is more votes than the current spread at the time of this writing between Biden and Trump in total votes.
Is our current electoral system an honest system? There is no way you could convince me that our system that’s currently in place for voting in this country is honest and upfront. We have election officials in some places marking and correcting ballots. Nobody should be marking anybody’s ballot other than the person who filled out the ballot. If the ballot is incorrectly filled out it gets tossed. If the ballot shows up after Election Day it gets tossed as well.
We have political figures in office that can’t even be honest and it’s Democrats just as much as Republicans. So that right there should make you question our election system. It’s all a big nasty show not for your benefit at all. It’s the humble opinion of this writer that the Democrat and Republican parties need to be dissolved. Term limits need to be put into place for all political offices. Nobody anywhere in any political position needs to be in office more than eight years. I also think four year terms are a better deal and would stop having to have elections every time we turn around. We vote these people to be in office working not running around half of their term or a quarter of it, trying to be reelected. Any political office below the President, the Vice President of our country should not be qualified for any long-term extra retirement plans that are not available to the average citizen. In short they can go on the same Social Security tax withdrawals as all the rest of us do to be used when they reach retirement age just as we do.
Time to clean up America and make it the country it once was. A lot of wrong in the past has been corrected and a lot of wrong should not have ever happened. But that is the past and we need to learn from the past mistakes and not spend time trying to eliminate the past. But the past that America is currently wandering down is not only disastrous, but will prove to be very unhealthy for us all.
